well, the boating will have to wait another weekend. Here is my project, 27 B&B Live Oaks 3" caliper 11' tall. I'll be working my boxer and 36" auger pretty hard at sun up tommorrow.

Moved to florida hoping to boat more than MA but it never seems to work out that way. I did shoot out into the harbor yesterday with my boat, only because I hadnt run it in over two months and I wanted to burn some gas and get some fresh fuel in there. Anyway, this was the picture I took of a wooden schooner at fishermans village punta gorda yesterday. Flat calm water and a great day, too bad it was a twenty minute cruise to get fuel and back to the dock

PICTURE OF A KETCH not a schooner.

Ketch has a taller mass in the front, A schooner has the taller mass in the Aft.

Believe it or not when I posted that I said to myself "if thats not technically a schooner ric will point it out" I knew it had something to do with masts, but thats all I knew. Thanks for the correction. Oh and at least you got the "aft" we call the "front" the "bow"

I could have said the Foremast was taller on a Ketch than a Schooner. I also could have spelled Mast correctly. In either case a schooner or Ketch will have the Aft mast forward of the Rudder post. A Yawl will have a Mizzenmast aft of the Rudder post. The Ketch in your picture is rigged with a self tacking Jib and standard reefed sails. A more modern Ketch might be rigged with Roller Reefing.

Many years ago I was into sailing and did a lot of it. Today I would rather start a motor, it is a lot less trouble.

never really was into sailing myself, although I can see the pleasure in it. I have always been on the water, starting in 9th grade when I built a boat in my cellar out of marine plywood threw a small outboard on it and took it out to all the boston harbor islands for a summer. My grandfather and uncle were lobstermen and I have owned a boat continuosly since I built that boat in ninth grade. Mostly center console outboard fishing boats. The one I have now is a 22' center console with a f-150 four stroke yamaha I bought new about 3 years ago when I traded in my 17' center console.
